POLISH & RHODIUM

Let us bring your jewellery sparkle back with our polishing and Rhodium Plating services, all process done in-store at our polish site by master-gold smith Vanig.

Rhodium is a precious metal and a member of the platinum family, which makes it naturally white in colour. 

The process starts with polishing & making sure all scratches are gone then needs a full cleaning in ultrasonic.

The process of electroplating uses an electric current, which runs through the metal that is submerged in a solution of rhodium. The rhodium then binds to the metal causing the plating to take effect. As diamonds and gemstones do not conduct electricity, they are safe to be used in this  electroplating. This process used on white gold to give it that bright white look and can be used on silver to help prevent tarnishing.

Rhodium plated lasting on jewellery varies, depending on the jewellery type and the lifestyle of its owner. A rhodium plated ring will wear the fastest, as rings subjected to more wear than any other jewellery.

It is our recommendation to have rings re-plated every 2 to 5 years.
